Episode 2: D-Day (I just discovered my husband has a pornography addiction, now what?)

Welcome to Hope for Wives.

With your co-hostesses:

Today, we are going to discuss Discovery Day, one of the most painful days in the life of a wife who discovers her husband has been viewing pornography or is compulsively acting out sexually. The day of discovery is typically called D-Day, because just like the Normandy Beach invasion during WWII, this day is full of death, wounding, and trauma.

D-Day is not the end of the story, though! We will leave you with hope.

We will be discussing:

  • What comes to mind for each of us personally as we think of Discovery Day?
  • What patterns do we see in partners immediately after discovery?
  • What is the best thing a wife can do for herself immediately after discovering her husband’s problematic sexual behavior?
  • What hope can we leave our listeners with?


Thank you for sitting in with us today. Our deepest desire is that you will find encouragement, insight, and maybe even a laugh or two in the many episodes to come. We will talk with you again in two weeks.

    I can’t believe I found you three. This is exactly what I needed to hear. I’m not sure which one was talking about rage and how it took about 4 minutes to set in, but I am experiencing the same thing. Thank you all for this podcast.
